4 x 4 pile group embedded in firm to stiff clay, with an underlying
rigid layer at 48m from ground level .
The piles are 24m long, 0.6m in diameter, and are spaced at 1.8m
centre-to-centre, as shown below.
Results from Repute
The pile group settlement
calculated by Repute is approximately 39 mm.
Comparison with benchmark
Tomlinson quotes the following results for pile group settlement, as obtained
using other computer programs:
- DEFPIG = 42 mm
- PGROUP = 31 mm
- Equivalent Raft Method = 30 mm
